Google AdSense is one of the best ad networks to monetize a website or a blog. It is 90% better than any other CPC advertising programs. It offers the publishers the highest CTR for every web page. The publishers could make lots of revenue daily from Google Adsense. Every new webmaster has a dream to monetize his website with this ad network. But unfortunately, many of them fail. Adsense has introduced some strict rules and requirements. It seems hard to get Adsense approval for our own blog. But, we know impossible is nothing.
The good news is “Getting Approval of Google AdSense with a New Blog is Now Really Easy”, if you follow some basic rules from the starting of your blog. When I first tried, I failed to get approval. But, following these rules, now I have an approved AdSense account. Thinking about this topic, I made a decision to share the basic rules of AdSense.
First Ready Your Blog Before Applying for Adsense:
Adsense moderators always approve those blogs whose have met up the requirements. First of all, you should make your blog ready for this process. Check first if your blog considers these requirements. Now, there are some initial basic requirements announced by AdSense team, and there are some known hacks and tricks that work. For example, on this official page it’s mentioned that for countries like China & India, publishers need to own the site for minimum 6 months, which is not a thumb-rule. Many Indian bloggers have got approval with one-month-old domain. The only thing which really matter here is “Quality”. Let’s look at factors which will make your blog AdSense ready:
Write High-Quality Contents:
A writing proverb “Content is King” helps you understand this requirement. A high-quality blog is identified with the high-quality contents. Great contents mean unique, decorated, stated and clear concerted content. Some black hat webmasters say, copy paste content only between 100-200 words is enough. But, I may assure him that his journey to Adsense will be certainly finished. I think, how a blog post or content could be only between 100-200 words? In my judgment, it is not possible to completely describe a topic within 100-200 words. And if copy paste content is enough, anybody can declare him as a blogger. Please keep in mind, Google AdSense doesn’t approve blogs with copy pasted copyright content. A well-optimized blog post should be 100% unique and above 500-600 words. So, always write blog post above this limit and it must be unique which clearly determinate the post topic.
Optimize Blog Post with Meta Tags and Make It Search Engine Friendly:
Optimize your unique blog post with Meta Title and Description Tag. The meta tags describe what the content is about to the crawler bots. It is not possible for AdSense editorial board to check every single website that has applied to get AdSsense approval. So, positively they will use their crawler bots. The bots will check for every footprint on your blog. That’s why you should make sure; you have specified these tags with appropriate information.
Please keep in mind that your Meta Title should be between 69 characters (including spaces), and Meta Description should be between 156 characters (including spaces). If you are using platform like WordPress or Blogger, here are two guides which will cover all basic SEO requirements:
Have Sufficient Contents or Posts:
You must lead sufficient contents or posts on every page and category. In total, you should have 15-30 blog posts on your whole blog. This is not an official declaration. But, I recommend everybody to at least have it. So, you should have at least 3-4 posts in every category, tag and page. Google Adsense told that we must have sufficient contents in every single web page. So, we should add contents in all pages and categories. There shouldn’t be any blank page without any content. And these posts have to pass the minimum length of 500-600 words as it is the best blog post length. The more you increase the length, the more you go towards to get Google Adsense approval.
Blog Domain Must Old At least 6 Months:
As I mentioned above, in certain countries like India and China, there is a requirement for 6 months for the domain to apply for AdSense. Here is official statement from AdSense team:
In some locations, including China and India, we require publishers to have owned their sites for 6 months. We’ve taken this step to ensure the quality of our advertising network and protect the interests of our advertisers and existing publishers.
Some blog domain could get approved having less old than six months. Even, I got my Adsense account with just two-month-old domain. Can you imagine? But, the average domain age for certain geo-location should be six months.
Apply Using Root Domain:
You should always apply using the root domain like yourdomain.com. Not blog.yourdomain.com.
Be Serious to Choose Content Images:
Google Adsense doesn’t approve blogs if they lead to copyrighted contents. Copyrighted means the things that have been copied from others directory without their permission. And we make fault every time when choosing an image. Some people just go to an image directory, take their suitable images and upload these on their blogs. Did they ever check if they have permission to use these? The really sad news is that, most of the webmasters who fail to get Adsense because of this copyrighted law. And this is really caused by copyrighted images. Here are guides which will help you to find images for free:
Lead a Nice design and Blog Structure:
Blog structure is the basic structure of your blog. So, make sure that you have a nice looking header, content area, sidebar, footer, etc. Always think if the visitors will like the structure. If people like it, Adsense would definitely like it. The first impression of any blog comes with blog design, and you can take advantage of any professional looking templates (free or paid), and use it on your blog.
Check if Your Blog is Not Blocked by Google:
Be sure that, your blog is not blocked by Google. Because Adsense will check your blog statistics on their search engine. Don’t know how to check it? Just search for “site:yourdomain.com” on Google. If you find out search results, your blog is not blocked. But, if you not, it is blocked.
Don’t Have Adsense Prohibited Content:
Adsense has directly told that, sites with adult contents, copyrighted contents, drug alcohol-related contents, hacking cracking contents, violent contents, weapons related contents and other illegal contents will not be approved.
Visitors Are Not a Factor for Approval Yet:
For getting Adsense approved, visitors are not a factor. Because you will get approved depending on your blog quality. It is sure that the Adsense moderator will never check for visitor count. So, don’t worry about visitors. But, for generating revenues, you must have enough visitors.
Here is one video where Harsh talked about getting AdSense approval:

please tell me how much monthly traffic should be consumed to approve google adsense
Great Article! very well written. Is it necessary that the Gmail address Information (First Name, Middle Name, Last Name) which I use for google AdSense be the same as the bank account or can it be different?
Gmail name could be different. However, the name on your AdSense account (You will be adding it while creating your AdSense account) and bank account has to be the same.
I’ve added a new “custom domain” for my blogspot at about 14days ago… and it still on review.
What should I do now.
Can I remove my “custom domain” and back it into my blogspot subdomain site?
Please advice me.
Is it possible to get Approval without having a domain name?
Yes, you can use YouTube to get approval without having a domain name or a blog.
Nice info. Thanks.
I have one question to Agarwal. I have already a Google adsense account active for my YouTube channel with no earnings. I have developed my own website 5 days ago, can I apply that Google adsense account to my newly created WordPress Website? What is the procedure. YouTube channel and website both are active on same Google account. Waiting for your kind reply.
yes, you can have the same adsense account. However, you will need to upgrade your account from hosted account (Youtube) to non hosted account (WordPress). To know more about how to upgrade, read this article: https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/2534771?hl=en
Also, wait for some time before applying. Have atleast 15-20 articles on your blog and then apply.
Sir plz review my WordPress blog site and tell what it is lacking. Google Adsense has not approved it saying insufficient content as one of the main reasons. Plz tell how to make it better.
You need to write bigger content. As of now, you have 300+ words in an article. However, write at least 800 words article.
ANINDITA CHAK your website dont have any post or text in home page your home page is empty make your home page looks good and as HARSH AGRAWAL Says write at least 800 words article. on your blog
Hello Sir, your video is awesome. Whatever I know about blogging , I have learnt from your website/video, etc. I have a domain and have been trying to write quality content on Vedic Astrological topics. Till today I have 11 posts in my (WordPress) blog and have 3 pages. I have 300 + words in each of them I applied for Google Adsense approval, but today I got mail from Adsense saying my blog Not approved. Sir please review my blog and advise how I can get approval. Regards
According to this article by Harsh, you should have at least 30 article with 500 to 600 words, i’ve been rejected as well, but am currently trying to increase each of my post to at least a thousand words…. Its stressful but I just need to do what i have to do, I have over 60 post on my blog over fourty of them are below 500
JOSEPH Did you get approved for Adsense? If you did, after how much posts you reapplied for Adsense?
Hi Harsh As Google says the website must be older than 6 months, so in that case, my domain is older than 6 months but the contents aren’t. Should I wait for 6 months or should I give a try?
Please suggest the site is CareerPolice[dot]com
The 6-month requirement is not mandatory. I have seen blogs getting approval within 1 month time. So go ahead & apply for AdSense.
Thank you so much for the response. I really appreciate your time and help! 🙂
